Challenges & Opportunities: Miku Jha of AgShift
Miku Jha’s affinity for agriculture started with mango trees. Although raised in Mumbai, Jha came from four generations of farmers. As a little girl, she grew up surrounded by the family’s main staple – mangos. Jha, 39, said what she learned on the family farm was priceless.
“I was looking at daily challenges and how things could be improved,” said Jha. “I kind of always had this feeling that we can put technology into changing certain things, and (using it) to improve this whole ag ecosystem especially for small and medium commercial farms.”
